Scenarios

This section describes how to install the X722 NIC driver so that BMSs can be provisioned on V5 servers. Skip this section for other types of servers.

NOTE:

BMSs using the following OSs can be provisioned on V5 servers: CentOS 6.9, Red Hat 6.9, CentOS 7.3, CentOS 7.4, SUSE 11 SP4, SUSE 12 SP3, Ubuntu 16.04, and XenServer 7.1.

This section uses CentOS 7.3 as an example to describe how to install the V5 server driver.

Procedure

  1. Upload the NIC-X710_XL710_X722-CentOS7.3-i40e-2.4.6-1.x86_64.rpm package obtained in section Preparations to the VM. For details, see step 11 in section Configuring the VM Environment.
  2. Enter the directory where the .rpm package is stored and run the following command to install the driver:

    rpm -ivh NIC-X710_XL710_X722-CentOS7.3-i40e-2.4.6-1.x86_64.rpm

    [root@localhost i40e]# rpm -ivh NIC-X710_XL710_X722-CentOS7.3-i40e-2.4.6-1.x86_64.rpm
